Welling United have signed former Colchester stalwart Karl Duguid and ex-Arsenal trainee Anthony Jeffrey.

Duguid made 476 appearances for the U's during two spells in Essex either side of a three-year stint at Plymouth.

The 36-year-old midfielder has been at non-league Stanway Rovers since leaving Colchester last summer.

Striker Jeffrey, 20, spent the second half of last season at Wycombe Wanderers, featuring 11 times without scoring for the League Two side.

Jeffrey did not make a senior appearance for Arsenal and left the Gunners last January, having been on the Premier League club's books since the age of eight.
